One look at the following chart pretty much tells the tale of gold demand in the West. It continues to sink and as it does, so does the gold price.
Today's slide in price is disconcerting as it has erased all of the gains it put in earlier this week. Friday is going to therefore be a big test for the yellow metal. Will buyers show up and keep the market supported above $1210 or do we go back down to revisit those lows once again?
With "The Hobbit, the Desolation of Smaug" due out tomorrow, let's hope it is not a case of the Desolation of Gold. Fridays have not normally been fun days for the gold bulls.
"When misguided public opinion honors what is despicable and despises what is honorable, punishes virtue and rewards vice, encourages what is harmful and discourages what is useful, applauds falsehood and smothers truth under indifference or insult, a nation turns its back on progress and can be restored only by the terrible lessons of catastrophe." … Frederic Bastiat
Evil talks about tolerance only when it’s weak. When it gains the upper hand, its vanity always requires the destruction of the good and the innocent, because the example of good and innocent lives is an ongoing witness against it. So it always has been. So it always will be. And America has no special immunity to becoming an enemy of its own founding beliefs about human freedom, human dignity, the limited power of the state, and the sovereignty of God. – Archbishop Chaput
